Dr. Kushner was very knowledgeable and explained what was causing my wrist pain in plain english. I'm glad I saw him for a second opinion after another doctor in a mega group in the area hastily decided I need surgery. Turns out therapy and a splint did the trick!

Dr. Kushner was lacking information about patient at time is surgery. Appears he didn't remember patient and had not even reviewed file prior to meeting on surgery day. Had 2 surgeries with him due to one feeding off other surgery. Same lack of knowledge both times. Very arrogant and had no...more
